, the obama care website is a success. by their measure, why not? look at other government successes. the postal service, dmv, green jobs, war on drug, irs. obama care hit rock bottom in record time. it's a usain bolt, cash for clunkers. is it a success by their own claims? much like a one dimensional town in a "gunsmoke" episode is. signing up for obama care is like poking road kill with a stick. the only movement you see is from the stick. the security, the processing, everything is a joke. that's the back end. like mine after five days in the tropics, it ain't working. so, obama care's real success is showing the, private and profit standards. standards don't exist. failure unmeasured blossomed, requiring more bureau accuratcr disaster. with a loving media it's arsonists with publicists. democrats may fret. small, pointless battles help the media deflect from obama's hell. right now the president is monty hall and he just gave the right a brand new car. it's up to them to choose what's behind door number two instead. i feel like i'm working in one of those giants stadiums. do you
of obama care, right, and who famously, the citizens of kentucky have reaped the benefit. kentucky now leads the nation in new sign-ups for health insurance, and that would be huge anywhere. it is a particularly huge deal for a state whose population is as unhealthful as kentucky's is. i don't mean any offense by it, but kentucky's population ranks at the bottom or toward the bottom of the nation's health ratings in lots and lots and lots of different categories, and kentucky has a lot of uninsured people. and it's the exact same deal two states over in mississippi, but in these two states, in the same part of the country, with the same health problems in their populations and a lot of the same challenges, one of them, kentucky, is now best in the nation in terms of people getting health insurance, and one of them, mississippi, is now worst in the nation, and not because they wouldn't know how to fix their problem. they knew how to fix their problem, but they stopped fixing it. mississippi has enrolled a smaller percentage of its population than any other state in the nation. they do n

obama care website you hear so much about that had its difficulties, the state as well. rebecca pierce in charge of the troubled website run by the state of maryland resigned friday. according to our baltimore affiliates, some lawmakers are hinting she was forced out. the maryland website signed up just over 3,000 people by november 23rd and only 700 more people one week later. the goal by the end of march is 150,000. lieutenant governor saying things clearly did not go as planned. >> everyone involved in launching the exchange is responsible and that includes me. >> meantime republicans continue to point out the shortcomings of obama care. here is rand paul. >> we're for competition. we're for selling insurance across state lines. above all we're for driving premiums down. the problem under the old system, premiums were too high. under obama care, the premiums are even higher. i don't see any way obama care can work. >> one of the architects of obama care was pressed on another promise the president made that turned out to be true. >> the president said you had unlimited choice of any

. but now we can judge obama care the way we should judge obama care, which is can it sign up a lot of people who need health insurance. the evidence from the states where it's working well, california and kentucky are notable examples, is that the structure of the thing actually can work. and so if they have indeed solved most of these problems, it will probably take another couple of weeks at least to get the website working the way they want, but they made progress and now we can judge it on its merits and not on some tech glitch. >> well, you also have the white house not being quite as definitive as they have been in the past, making these statements about this is where we are, this is what's going to happen. listen to ed rendell, obviously former democratic governor of pennsylvania, on "morning joe" this morning. >> i think there's still a chance for this to achieve its basic goal. that doesn't excuse the mismanagement early. but there's still a chance to achieve a basic goal, which is to drive down the health care curve and also to ensure over 30 million people who don't have
